Morning Routine

Am I the only one that loves reading about people's morning routines? For me, morning routines are a crucial part of my day. Back in high school, mine was so intense that if I wasn't eating breakfast and reading the comics at 7:00, the rest of my morning was thrown off and I would have a horrible day because of it. (My sister LOVED to steal the comics before I could get to them... Sometimes I would refuse to eat anything until she gave them back to me. My mom loved that.) I've relaxed some since then, but my morning routine is still very intense.


5:50 // My alarm goes off bright and early! Getting up this early is a struggle sometimes (and yes, sometimes I snooze it a few times), but to me it's worth it! Honestly, the grogginess wears off within a few minutes and I feel so much more productive for getting up and starting my day.

6:00 - 6:45 // I spend about 30-45 minutes in the gym each morning. (Or at least I try to.) Sometimes I walk on the treadmill, do a Kayla Itsines workout, or make up one of my own.

6:45 - 7:00 // Shower time! Is there anything better than getting in a shower right after a sweaty workout? Not in my world. By this time I'm awake, running on endorphins, and feeling generally good about the day. While in the shower, I mentally pick out my outfit for the day and decide what I want to eat for breakfast.

7:00 - 7:15 // I give myself 15 minutes to make breakfast in the morning. I can't start my day without eating something. (I truly don't understand how people can survive without breakfast! It's my favorite meal of the day!) So far this semester I've been really loving peanut butter and banana toast. It's about 274 calories, plus protein and potassium! YUM.

7:15 - 7:30 // I eat my breakfast and watch the Today Show. This is also when I check my phone (if I haven't already on the treadmill while walking) and read The Skimm. I HAVE to start my day off with the news. Even though it's not really that pleasant in this day and age, I love knowing what's going on around me. (Plus, I have daily news quizzes in my class!)

7:30 - 8:10 // Next, I do my makeup, make sure my hair looks somewhat decent, and get dressed. My bag is usually already packed, but I double check that I have everything I might need throughout the day. Then I make sure my water bottle is full, and I'm out the door by 8:10 to get to class at 8:45. I usually get to campus at 8:30 and can walk to class totally un-rushed, taking in the sites around me.

  1. The Skimm is great! I'm with ya...I need some sort of news catch up before starting the day. Today I learned about an apparent "strong signal" coming from 94 light years away...crazy!

  5. That's so amazing that you go to the gym before class! I love being up and moving before everyone else but have never actually worked out THAT early. However, I may go to a 6:45 spin class next week!!
